"Spice 101" 

When: Mon., June 24, 6:30 p.m. 2013

What: 

So it's the early 1500s, and you're living in the nation that would later be called Sri Lanka, and you're a young Sinhalese with a pretty good job peeling the bark off cinnamon plants. Then the Portuguese show up and build a fort, and kill the other traders, and enslave your friends and family. Then, a few years later, the Dutch show up and kill all the Portuguese but further industrialize production, all while working you to death. And then 500 years pass and that cinnamon stick is just what you put in a fancy hot chocolate. Clearly, spices are interesting, so hit "Spice 101" at Savory Spice Shop (110 N. Tejon St., savoryspiceshop.com) at 6:30 tonight. A mere $15 gets you history, preparation, grinding, storage, recipes and tastings, and they'll probably let you leave when you're done. — Bryce Craword
